If you remove the outlet you'll see on the back of it that the wires are either attached to screws or they are inserted into small holes. (Goes without saying unplug from shore power first!) Your plug wires may have come loose or may need to be reinstalled. If they are inserted in the holes remove them one at a time and reinsert them or attach them to the screws. (There should be an opening next to where the wire is inserted. It probably looks like a slotted screwdriver. You'll need to insert a small screwdriver into the slot and push on it in order for the wire to be easily removed from the hole.) Reinstall the plug and turn on the shore power. If you don't have a voltage tester plug something in that doesn't much matter to you just in case there is a surge. Don't use the microwave as a tester. If that all fails you may also have a defective outlet. Try replacing it with a similar outlet. You could also have a faulty breaker. Make sure you switch it completely off and then back on again. Beyond all of this I'd take it to the shop. If all other outlets are working (they should be since the microwave is (or should be) on a dedicated circuit. Good luck.

Outlet died

Guys, just a fast comment to the original poster, try to plug something else into the outlet that you know works. Maybe the microwave has died and gone onto the great beyond!-and the outlet is still good.

Best bet is use a tester to check the outlet. If no power disconnct the shore power, pull the outlet, re-power and carefully check the wire with a tester. That will eliminate the microwave, outlet and connection. After that you will need to move upstream from there.

I used a tester to test the outlet - no power. After unhooking from the power post, I unscrewed the outlet and discovered that one very thick yellow coated wire runs into the sealed outlet.
